Care Training Courses

The Food Hygiene (England) Regulations 2006 require all who are involved in food premises to be: ‘trained, supervised or instructed, commensurate with their role’. It does not specify what level of training or whether it should be a nationally recognised qualification or an in-house certificate. We can offer both, for all of the food safety and health & safety programmes.

There are both advantages and disadvantages:

Advantages of Nationally Recognised Qualifications:

  • The content of the courses are understood by enforcement agencies such as Environmental Health and Commission for Social Care Inspection ( CSCi [Usually pronounced: Seesky] ).

Disadvantages of Nationally Recognised Qualifications:

  • Once staff are trained they may use this qualification to find another job and therefore the company lose their investment.

Advantages of In-house Qualifications:

  • The qualification may not be used to further the career of an employee outside of the organisation.
  • They are less expensive, as examination fees will be lower.
  • They can be tailored to the individual needs of the employer.
  • They can be focused on the specific needs of the employee.
  • They may involve less time, as the content is specific to a role.

Disadvantages of In-House Qualifications:

Although the content may be the same as for a nationally recognised qualification, that may need to be proved to an enforcement officer.

What do our clients say about us?

I hope that I never have to put into practice some of the skills that I learnt today, especially using a fire extinguisher but at least I know what to do now, which I didn’t before. Ray made it a really worthwhile experience and it is training for life as well as work.
